My rugarch package on r-forge which links to Rcpp/RcppArmadillo has in 
the last 2 check cycles failed with the following errors:

Thu Dec  6 00:15:29 2012: Building tarball for package rugarch (SVN

More details here:

I've been unable to replicate the problem locally on either windows or 
Ubuntu x64 machines with R version 2.15.2 Patched (2012-12-04 r61215), 
and the latest Rcpp/RcppArmadillo versions from r-forge. I've not made
any changes to the source code either.
gcc/g++ are 4.6.3 20111208 (from latest R-tools for the windows machine).

Any ideas/help much appreciated.

Thanks for your time (and the excellent Rcpp* packages).
